therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase american debt limit." senator barack obama, march 16, 2006. how about them apples? >> it is not good for obama. but he also -- he also knew that his boat was not vote to make a difference. >> come on. he said what he said. >> of course he said what he said. i am covering for him. i am just saying people do different things at different times. >> there has been a shift here, a deeply depressing column by david brooks on friday that says the era of the grand bargain, as he calls it, is over. there was a feeling over the last couple of years that both sides might get together and raise taxes and cut entitlements and get a grand bargain to deal with the debt. that seems to be a lost opportunity. obama seems to be moving away from it, congress. they are going to get in these fractious squabbles over the debt ceiling but they are not going to deal with the essential problem in a meaningful way. >> i am reading robert carroll's book on lbj. jack kennedy, it looked like he was having the same problem with the congress. early on, lbj was having the sa
work with democrats controlling both the house and for two years the senate, why can't president obama, a democrat, achieve more with republicans who control the house and his democrats who control the senate? >> there's a lot of myth about tip o'neal and ronald reagan working together. they did not. >> you saw the picture. >> they did not. look, in reagan's first term, you know who he worked with? he had a republican senate by ten votes and he had a democratic house that had 40 guys in it called blue dog democrats and danny of chicago. these are the guys he worked with on his economic package. i went into the white house in 1985, john. reagan had won 49 states and they beat him again and again on contra aid. he fought for it. he finally got that through. we had to fight to get the missile through. >> what's the point? >> the point is when the democrats took over the senate, they not only borked ronald bork, they almost got ronald reagan, attempted to impeach him. we had democrats we could work with. >> i'm saying that all things considered, he had remarkable success in dealing with de
when senator barack obama was preparing for his first inauguration. >> we are talking about the national day of service, and today the first family spent their time volunteering along with countless others. the president started this to honor the legacy of dr. martin luther king? >> that is right, and this is the kickoff of the inauguration weekend. this day of service sets a different tone. before he is sworn in, president obama is shipping in. today, the first family picked up their paint brushes and volunteered in northeast, d.c. >> this is what america's about. this is what we celebrate. >> they started the day of service at their first inauguration, a call for people to volunteer on this specific day. vice-president joe biden spent today in southeast at the d.c. armory, filling care packages for troops. on the national mall, a service summit, with celebrities like eva longoria and chelsea clinton. >> it is inspiring to see all of these people out here. everybody is here to give back. >> and people did not even have to wait. they can participate on service projects on si
party is advocating limiting national service. president obama campaigned to expand to 250,000. senator kennedy helped to pass the expansion. i was wondering what role "the nation" can play in helping to support the program. >> we've done a lot of work around expanding doctors into rural community centers. americorps is a good program. all of those should be supported. we have not done as much. there has been controversy at the magazine. i am more of a supporter of teach for america than my colleagues. they are good programs. >> what could we do collectively as the next up for occupy wall street? -- next step for occupy wall street? >> what is your main interest in the issues raised by occupy wall street? if it is money and politics, you should join with those who are occupying the supreme court, fighting in states for clean money reform, and fighting for an amendment strategy to overturn the citizens united decision, and fighting in elections to change the supreme court. >> what would you think of having a national general assembly modeled on the original continental congress in philad
. in 1999, then state senator barack obama had a chance to vote on a bill that clamped down on school shooters specifically aggravated assault with a firearm. what did he do? he voted present. aka, he didn't do his job to protect kids. what is the liberal media doing? instead of fair and balanceed reporting, bob schieffer are running around comparing the nra to usama bin laden and adolf hitler. rush limbaugh on that. >> where is the media outrage at bob schieffer comparing obama gun initiative with the civil rights act of 1964. killing bin laden and then the hitler comparison? surely if we can defeat hitler we can wipe out in nra. i mean surely. why does the left get away with this. this is awe tenseably a journalist. >> eric: rush has a point. >> bob: he does not at all. people , a lot of people, including myself think they're thugs. they have intimidated people. if we can defeat the other people, the guys ought to be a piece of cake and they should be. >> eric: group of law-abiding citizens comparing it to bin laden and hitler. >> bob: not the nra membe membership. there are fine go
on the left might be some democrats and some republican-leaning seats in the senate, states that need to win their senate seats in order for the democrats to continue holding majority in the senate we're talking about arkansas, alaska, north carolina and so forth. and if obama wants to pursue an aggressive agenda in the second term, he can't afford to lose the senate and not have either the senate or the house. >> you know, dan, i agree with you about the one essential here, that is economic growth. the president can't come close to finding his ambitions with 2% growth and he can't come close to raising middle class incomes which have been falling since the economic recovery started, without getting growth to 3, 4%. that will see, that seems to me to be what will determine whether or not his second term is ultimately a success. >> and facts historically low in the first term if he doesn't get it up it's not going to happen, paul. >> i agree with you, dan. >> when we come back a 26-year-old computer hacker commits suicide after a federal indictment that could have put him behind bars for deca
. and moving the obama agenda forward. it deserves to be debated on the senate floor. the senate has a responsibility to fix what is obviously broken. the senate has a responsibility to the americans who want jobs, who are seeing them move overseas and women who earn less than men for the same job and americans still looking for work and people looking for a path to citizenship. how in the heck are you ever going to get immigration reform done if we have to put up with the republicans with all their filibusters? these are victims of what the filibuster has become. if harry reid is going to take steps to change the rules, he needs to make it count. harry, you've got to do this. go for the jugular. since when do you trust mitch mcconnell on anything? he will stab you in the back in a new york second, politically. let's turn to larry cohen, president of the coalition of american workers. coalition of organizations that support the reform. we appreciate your time. how important is this? is there a chance if this doesn't happen that the 113th will be just like the 112th? >> there's a seri
formal state dinner that president obama has held, that's six in total. and senate minority leader
formal state dinner that president obama has held, that's six in total. and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell had turned down at least two. and mcconnell even declined an invitation last spring when the university of kentucky men's basketball team was honored at the white house for winning the national championship. in 2011, the white house held a reception for newly elected members of the congress, only 27 of the new republican house members showed up. that's out of a record freshman class that totaled 87. more recently no elected republicans elected a white house screening of "lincoln" last month. had mitch mcconnell, john boehner, lamar alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration

[applause] and of course i have to thank our former mayor and senator dianne feinstein. her transit leadership began at city hall when she over saw the rebuilt of our cable car system and wonderful you have been part of this and champion for this all these years. congress woman spare thank you and speaker pelosi we want to thank you for shepherding this subway. we needed champions like all of you and thank you for that. to the mta staff and the director and everyone doing the work, to the ta staff, to the mtc, thank you for all that you're doing. now i had in my talking points a reference that we know you need the central subway if you get on the 30 stockton and apparently everyone else had that in the talking points. through the denser parts of san francisco, as someone who doesn't have a car i have and millions of us have wasted countless hours trying to get through our downtown corridor but i want to take a moment to thank the most important folks who are not here with us and that is the people of san francisco. for years before i joined the bo
? >> ultimately, short. two tools that are very real and very powerful coming up. obama has tried to demonize the debt ceiling. okay. set it back with a condition. okay democrats in the senate. you have not passed a budget in three years. the reason why the democrats have control of the senate is that harry reid has said democratic senators in the witness protection program with ever -- whenever budget issues come up. twenty democrats are up for election in 2014. half of them should not be coming back of the continue to vote with obama on tax and spend crazy debt policies which is what they have been doing. i think it is very important for the american people to see what the senate has not done and to force them to act but that. gerri: you sure can't act -- argue with that. the senate has not passed a budget and 1,361 days. let me get a comment. it would stop pay to members of congress if they don't do some of these things, if they don't get a budget resolution. you in favor of that? >> i think it's a good idea for two reasons. senators have not been doing democratic leaders have not been doi
of all ages in the background, mr. obama signed 23 executive orders on gun control. late next week the senate starts considering plans to limit gun ownership. congresswoman norton, are kids being used as props in the gun control debate? >> bonnie, this time the kids were targets not just props so on appropriate occasions they will insist on being heard. >> i think children have been used on many political issues by both sides, brings sympathy to any issue but we'll say it again >> the i think more than just props and they have like you said been used over time when it was issue of nuclear disarmament during reagan's time they were used repeatedly because again, sympathy that gets generated. >> of course both sides use them as props but that doesn'take it right. especially with the nra showing the president's daughter in the online commercial, i was totally against that even though i'm for the nra that hits below the belt. it should be off limits. >> but as eleanor pointed out, kids in connecticut were targets so why in this instance is it inappropriate to some people to use. >> i d
a lot of women look to michelle obama. >> no. >> no? come on. >> i don't go to the president or senators to find my wardrobe. but i do appreciate the first lady's fashions. and we got to see some of them. we know that she's not known just for her style and grace. she's also known for her fitness. and those arms. we'll show you how she maintains those famously toned arms. hmmm. p. let's see if walmart can help you find the same look for less. okay. see? walmart has all these leading eyewear brands and styles. rockstar! really? yeah. oh, wow! oh, black frame looks good on you. yeah? you can get a complete pair starting at just -- $38. really?! and did you know that our glasses come with a free 12-month replacement guarantee? i didn't know walmart had all this. the price is impressive, the quality is too! come to walmart and see for yourself. find rollbacks on the contact lenses you want. like the acuvue oasys -- now $27.88. walmart. that make kids happy. and even fewer that make moms happy too. with wholesome noodles and bite sized chicken, nothing brings you together like chicken noodle s
this project was being planned well, that the initial funds that were granted to us by president obama and with the great work of our congressional delegates and speaker pelosi and senator feinstein we would make sure to use it in the right way and creating the jobs and the investment that people wanted to see. u.s. transportation secretary ray lahood. please share this announcement. >> hello san francisco. i am delighted to be here to celebrate with all of you three very important champions for this project. senator feinstein who doesn't often call me, but when she does i pay attention, and four years ago when i went to see her about a number of issues this project was number one on her list. we need to get it done. we need to get a full funding grant agreement. she has been a champion for this project from the beginning going back -- i am sure she will tell you, i don't know how far. speaker pelosi, a champion for this project. [applause] speaker pelosi doesn't call me very often, but when she does it's always important. four years ago when i took this job i went to see the s
say that president obama has not been the most socialible president with congress. i talked to red state senators, democratic senators who have never been to the white house and they're sort of famous, there aren't a lot of notes. it's an odd blind spot for for--since voters and reporters are pretty much easy dates. it's not hard to sort of build a little good will, and jefferson did that. he didn't love everybody who came to dinner, but when the congressional session began, he would write his daughters and say, i shall now become an un unpuncutual correspondence. he would have all republicans one night. all federalists the next night. he said i believe that measures in congress are more likely to pass if members of congress feel they're part of the executive conversation. >> gavin: jon, thank you for being here. congratulations on a wonderful book. >> appreciate it. >> gavin: from the past to our future. up next how television screens are likely to dominate our lives but not necessarily in the way you think. cisco's padma warrior is our next guest. analysis. the presidential inaug
to get action. >> talk about gun control, another guest you'll have this week is senator roy blunt who i heard talking about his reaction to president obama's gun control speech saying he really didn't think the president was doing a lot to compromise and that he thought that the legislation proposed to have a little bite to it. he's going to be on with you. what are you talking about with him? >> again, the whole second term agenda, but a lot of that will be gun control. the general feeling i think up on capitol hill, maureen, is getting the assault weapons ban will be tough. it will be a little easier to get some kind of limit on the size of these big magazines that can hold 30 or 100 rounds of ammunition. the thing that's getting overwhelming support in the polls, 90%, is the idea of a universal background check, that every sale of a gun whether it's from the registered federal dealer, whether it's at a gun show or a private sale that, there has to be some kind of background check to see whether somebody has a criminal background, a mental health problem. i think that has a pretty goo
avenue just blocks from the white house. but its protest is bigger than obama. >> it's to send a message to all the politicians. not just the president. the senator, the congressmen, all the big business people. these are the problems of ordinary working people we need to be tackling. >> reporter: tom sherwood, news 4. >>> nbc 4 is the place to watch inauguration day events from start to finish. we will be up extra early. news 4 today begins at 4:00 a.m. on monday. we'll be live on capitol hill to preview the day's events. you can also check out our inauguration guide on nbcwashington.com. >> pretty big deal. happens every four years. >> that's right. >>> right now it is 6:36. hope you're off to a great morning. coming up, we're going to run down some of the a-list celebrities in town for inauguration weekend. >>> plus, how bicyclists can get around the district in the coming days. >>> and it's time to party. come on. we're talking about d.c. hotels and restaurants and how they're accommodating the crowds. we're sitting on a bunch of shale gas. there's natural gas under my town. it's a g

an oral history with him. his interview is on the senate website. >> i majored in politics. my question today, is a reasonable believe that president obama's second term will be similar or different from his first, considering that the same economic crisis still exists, even though you mentioned that the second inauguration is traditionally about more specific, what you want to talk about, now that he no longer has to run for reelection? >> second terms have been baffled totally unpredictable things. franklin roosevelt -- second terms have been filled with totally unpredictable things. franklin roosevelt, you would think he was completely in charge. the first thing he did was to ask her to increase the size of the supreme court. for support to increase the size of the supreme court. richard nixon took the oath of office after winning a huge victory in 1972. in 1973, he was on top of the world. a year-and-a-half later, he was resigning because of the water watergate scandal. there are a lot of things that you cannot predict. you hope that president after the first term are much more in c

and beyond. i mean, government appointments, and i was in the united states senate as a chief of staff when president obama first came in, and it took us over a year to get u.s. attorneys and u.s. marshals through. this system has to change. the president should be allowed the make these appointments, and the senate, yes, of course, they should look it, but they need to move it quickly, and we need these, and there is diversity in the judges and women in the judge, and our system needs these judges in place. >> yes. this is so important to just point out that as much as we can have a critique of the moment, we have to recognize that the president has been ham strung over and over again be by the senate. and of course, we won't level a critique at the government that we don't level at ourselves, so when we come back, we want to ask about the women in media, and the women covering washington, an an inside look at who has the power. our cabinet picture is pretty darn male, too, when we come back. ♪ got to keep moving on ♪ fly away hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can

join president obama, vice president biden and countless americans in urging congressional leaders to adapt -- to adopt them without delay. i'd also like to echo the president's call for the senate to confirm todd jones as director of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives. this is a critical justice department component that has been without a senate-confirmed leader for six years. and to eliminate misguided restrictions that require the atf to allow the importation of dangerous weapons simply because of their age. some have said that these changes will require tough votes. tough votes by members of congress. well, as you all know, public service is never easy, and there come times when those of us who are in this elected or appointed positions must put the interests of those who we serve, we are privileged to serve, above that which might be politically expedient or professionally safe. this is one of those times. by acting within existing authorities to improve our enforcement capacity for laws that are already on the books, by enacting common sense legislation
now you don't see a lot of republicans calling for unity with obama on gun legislation. but plenty of democrats from conservative states or conservative congressional districts who have so far been lukewarm to these proposals, including the majority leader in the senate, harry reid. this may be a fight that just gets started this year. and is something that he needs to -- he needs to keep pushing for. there's a reason that democrats haven't pushed gun control legislation in a really, really long time. now, some people say the politics of this has changed because of -- especially because of newtown. but not an easy issue to get through. >> yeah. another tough issue might be immigration reform. certainly a lot of latinos who voted for the president, 71%. he got that vote. they're expecting big reform and a lot to be done on their part. do you see that happening? i mean, they want it done because it didn't happen the first term. they want it now. >> absolutely. and obama has promised that will be an immediate priority. there is some -- some potential for a compromise bill being fashio
-election in 2014 in the senate, and it's just a very hard bargain to drive for some of those red states. >> yeah. amy, get you an article i see highlighted. i read at home. highlighted. i do. this is obama runs afoul of dem base. you wrote this. talked about a few things. among the things in your examples, the chuck hagel nomination, a second term cabinet dominated by white men. how does the president deal with backlash from his own party? >> i think he has to start talking to them a little more. i've been hearing from democrat strategists angry about this. they need to be a little less sloppy as was the case with the pastor. they need to embrace this woman problem. it's been a problem with them for a while, since the start of the administration, melanie barnes going on a golfing trip, crist simple f criticism for not even golfing with women. >> good to see you both here. stick around. after the show, maybe we'll talk. >>> more front page politics today. today is the last day of the gop's annual retreat and this year republicans focused on unity with a theme many voices, one conference. it all w
